Worse mattresses! Thin doors. Were able to hear what the neighbours spoke about. Really bad smell from the drains during the monsune-downpour. No breakfast on site, must go to the next door hotel. Local houses between hotel and beach, so no view.

... my meal. I do not offer this as a criticism, it meant to me
that the food was freshly prepared and when it turned up it was delicious. As you can seefrom the image, there was the "main event" curry, a bit of dhal, an offering (on the bottom right of the image) that was like a mildly spiced potato salad and very tasty, mango chutney, a poppadum and another onion sambal. I should mention that further papad were brought as I ate.
The entire meal was ...
... after I walked away, two local people said hello to me. I asked about another cheap guesthouse around there. Then they took me to a nice one. The showed single room was nice and reasonable (cheaper than Hill House), so I took it immediately. The owner and a staff member were nice and friendly. They gave me welcome milk tea as well. The staff member also gave free bread which a friend had given to him. That was a great stay.
